10-20-30 Rule of PowerPoint

Guy Kawasaki offers up his golden rules of Powerpoint on his blog How to Change the World: The 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint.

It’s quite simple: a PowerPoint presentation should have ten slides, last no more than twenty minutes, and contain no font smaller than thirty points.

Guy's article is a good reminder to some of the basic principles I blogged about in
Nine steps to PowerPoint magic (and Seth's Best of 2008) back in Jan '09.

Having just spent a week at Open Text's sales kick-off for FY10, the reminder about font size is timely. Whilst it seems people are improving with their presentations, you still get the occasional 'eye chart' that nobody can read and therefore defeats the purpose of the slide!
